Knit Scarf by Guild Member Nancy H.

My sister, Nancy H., knit a scarf for my son's birthday and I wanted to show it off. The design was inspired by the Japanese knitters. Here is a Pinterist link to samples of Japanese knitting. I bought the Alpaca yarn from our guild member Sandy at the April joint meeting. It is from their Alpacas and is as soft as silk. Nancy created the bottom fringe from her own design.

Test Knitting for Antarctica Knitters

Over the past few months hats are showing up at meetings as test knitters work to help Lynn Hamann and Christine Powell improve and edit patterns for their book. Here are a few of the original creations. We have learned so much from these amazing knitters and are so grateful for their help. Here a few of the photos collected over time.

Rug Hookers Have Fun

Saturday, December 12th was a fun morning at the coffee shop next to Garfield's Restaurant on Broadway. Hookers met and while hooking,

discussed starting a night group and possibly moving the day or the location of the day group. For January 2016 the hookers will meet at the coffee shop on the second Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Meanwhile Judy Br. sent out a survey to query our growing hooker group.
